Birthday celebrations mean cake, so wow the kids with this impressive creation!
You’ll need a 55cm square cake board.
2 x 340g packets golden buttercake mix or 2 quantities Homemade buttercake (see related recipe)
160g packet 100s and 1000s
48 mini M&Ms (we used blue, red and yellow)
250g butter, softened
3 cups icing sugar mixture
2 tablespoons milk
Blue food colouring
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 7cm-deep, 20cm round cake pan and an 8-hole,3/4 cup-capacity mini loaf pan. Line bases and sides of both pans with baking paper.
Prepare packet cakes following packet directions or homemade cakes (see related recipe). Spoon 1/3 cup batter into each prepared mini loaf hole. Spoon remaining batter into prepared round cake pan. Bake mini loaf pan for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven. Bake round cake pan for 45 minutes or until cooked through. Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.
Using a serrated knife, level tops of cakes if necessary. Cut an 18.5cm (base) semicircle from round cake. Trim cake top to sit level with top of loaves.
Make icing: Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a bowl until pale. Gradually add icing sugar mixture and milk, beating constantly until combined.
Place 1/4 cup icing into a bowl. Tint blue. Spoon blue icing into a piping bag fitted with a 2mm plain nozzle. Place cake piece and loaves, cut-sides down, on a board (see Cooking class, below). Spread each piece with plain icing. Dip sides of cake and loaves into 100s and 1000s.
Using the picture as a guide, place each piece of cake onto cake board to form a hopscotch game. Pipe ‘HOME’ on rounded piece of cake. Pipe numbers on remaining pieces of cake. Decorate with M&Ms. Serve.
Cooking class: Place cakes, cut-sides down, on board. Place each mini loaf on a skewer or fork before icing to make it easier to ice sides and coat sides in sprinkles.
Tip: You could use a snap-lock bag instead of a piping bag to pipe numbers.
